The debut of Toyota's new Land Cruiser was packed with excitement, with the automaker unveiling not only the new 250 Series model but also a refreshed 70 Series for Japan, despite that model being nearly 40 years old. That wasn't all though, as the company displayed a shadowy teaser showing what appeared to be a revived FJ Cruiser off-roader, along with a less rugged, more EV-like crossover and a three-wheel off-road scooter. Since this set of future vehicles was previewed at a Land Cruiser event, it seems that Toyota plans to expand its Land Cruiser lineup to include an even wider variety of vehicles.




The SUV on the right doesn't look quite as exciting as the other vehicles shown in the teaser, but it's interesting that Toyota is mentioning it here, as nothing about it speaks "off-road." Instead, this crossover adopts sleek features that closely resemble the models from Toyota's all-electric bZ lineup, and its notable lack of intakes up front suggests that it is in fact an EV.



The SUV on the left takes a more rugged approach, and by the looks of it, this model could serve as Toyota's rival to the four-door Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler. Its compact profile is strikingly similar to the Toyota Compact Cruiser EV concept shown in 2021, with its blocky LED lighting and thick C-pillar mirroring the design of the original concept. The vehicle shown in the teaser also adds a large spare tire on the tailgate, more ground clearance, and enlarged tires. Toyota didn't go into specific details about this car, but it's highly likely that this is the rumored successor to the FJ Cruiser off-roader, which was last offered in the U.S. in 2014.


For now, we have the all-new Land Cruiser to look forward to in the U.S., which brings retro looks and a smaller footprint compared to the full-fledged 300 Series we've been missing out on. Toyota hasn't provided any release dates quite yet, but it did mention a price tag in the "mid-$50,000 range."
